Welcome... to Craven Place.
A new novel from Richard Wright, whose previous scribblings have included the novels Cuckoo and Thy Fearful Symmetry. Craven Place is an adaptation of a movie that died in post-production many years ago but, like the novel's witch Megan Morgan, has never quite found peace.
THE AUTHOR. THE PSYCHIC. THE VAGRANT. THE HACK
An invitation to a crumbling cottage in the lonely wilds. The legend of a witch who haunts it still.
A disappearance from a locked room and the rising, ancient power that may be culprit.
The hag has waited long for visitors, and guests are encouraged to extend their stay.
For whatever remains of their lives.
"Craven Place is a mad stab at the sort of story that doesn't get written much these days, and a sidestep from what I usually write. The characters are heightened, even melodramatic, and the location has a strange timeless quality. Take away a mobile phone or two, and the book could be set anytime in the last forty years. It's an odd little murder mystery wrapped up in a ghost story, or perhaps the other way around, and I'm looking forward to finding out whether readers still have an appetite for this sort of thing!"
RICHARD WRIGHT has been writing strange, dark fictions for over a decade. Currently living with his wife and daughter in New Delhi, India, his stories have been widely published in the United Kingdom and USA. Most recently, his tales have been found in magazines and anthologies including World's Collider, Dark Faith: Invocations, and More Tales Of The City.
